Ophthalmology Quicksand Chronicles Episode #9   |  BRANDON AYRES: Humbling Hurdles of IOL Fixation
June 2021

Watch—or listen—to this episode of Quicksand Chronicles where hosts are joined by Dr. Brandon Ayres. In addition to being a world-class surgeon, Dr. Ayres’ dedication to teaching has made a tremendous impact in the world of ophthalmology. Dr. Ayres dives into a quicksand moment of a patient who has a dislocated multifocal IOL from a golf ball. Based on the patient’s request, Dr. Ayres kept it his priority to keep the patients’ multifocal IOL. After what he thought was a “successful” procedure of recentering the original multifocal IOL, Dr. Ayres thought he was king of the world. That all came crashing down when he received a text from the patient 3 days later where his IOL looked completely sideways. Tune in to see what Dr. Ayres does to fix this complex IOL issue!
